Irene Jane Buckwalter, 78

December 29, 2018

Henry, and Austin D. Holtzapple; her 3 great grandchildren: Kiara, Kaiden and Kyle, and by her niece, Sandy Bailey. She was preceded by her son, Robert M.

So very sorry to hear of Irene’s passing. I was unable to attend Bobby’s funeral last year, so I had not seen Irene in many many years, surely my loss. She had a kind and generous spirit always ready to laugh. Life did not put us together often but I remember her fondly for sure. 
Now she rests in the loving arms of Jesus and we will see her in Heaven soon enough. Hold on to the good memories until then. 
Always with love 
 
Aunt Lil and Uncle Frank
